Sunset Christian wedding in Goa

BY The WMG Bride | 13 Jun, 2015 | 630 views | 3 min read

This beach wedding is  beautiful in its simplicity and elegance- just a few lanterns scattered around in the sand, some incredible photography by Katia Peshakova and a gorgeous bride in a strapless gown against the sunset.

Meet Raj and Bhavita

Bhavita says "We both met in the summer of 2000 at a youth programme and even though we were friends to begin with, we knew that there was something special between us. We were friends for a couple of years and then our relationship blossomed. We have been childhood sweet hearts and together we grew into the people we are today. Raj and I have known each other for 15 years and been together for the last 12 years. We are opposites of each other. Whilst I like fine dining, exotic holidays and have a fiery nature, Raj loves the outdoors, cars and is the calm chilled-out one. Being opposites is what has made us into such a good team and we keep each other grounded." 10599708_609903842443353_2508484789386719658_n10417772_609903852443352_6293162545698415546_n 10407385_609990159101388_3396214148443687459_n10922619_610166442417093_1486980149278964221_n10665055_609894829110921_6115667096901524496_n10675730_610164639083940_186341698677189338_n10675730_610164695750601_2071725865300901317_n1489134_609895302444207_2989568770216087865_n10930148_609931689107235_3752975963827228229_n10933856_609992749101129_2818670035769632736_nGALLERY From the bride:  After attending my cousin's wedding reception the idea of having a destination wedding popped up in my head. I had been to Goa in 2003 and loved it there so I felt it would be lovely to marry next to the sea, sand and beautiful weather. The lead up to the wedding was pretty calm.  The nerves only truly kicked in when I put my dress on  and made my way down to the venue, luckily I had my bridesmaids who helped me relax. I remember walking on the sand and saying to my dad as my wedges sunk down that maybe the whole beach thing should have been done barefoot :) Raj was quite nervous leading up to the wedding and I could see it in his eyes when my dad gave my hand to his. We remember when we said our vows that no one else mattered and we forgot about the guests watching us. We became emotional and remember trying to keep composed because we had no tissues at hand to mop up the tears. It was a special moment between us and even though it was in front of our friends and family, nobody mattered but us. With all the hiccups that come with any wedding that moment was perfect and we will treasure it forever. Working with Katia from our pre wedding shoot to capturing all our wedding antics was fun. We love her eye for detail and the uniqueness that Katia brings. Some of pictures look like they couldn't be real because they looked so beautiful. Our picture of us in the pool is so dreamlike and we assure you that it was all Katia's work.
